Hello All

I am in the process of setting a test environment on the same network but different domain.

We currently have several exchange servers in domain A and want a test Exchange server in domain B. The test server will be on a different subnet to the other servers as well.

Will the above setup cause any issues with the LIVE network/exchange?

Please advise

Many Thanks

Domain or forest?
If you're in a separate forest and you don't tell either forest about the DNS servers or each other and you call everything a different name then you're fine.
If separate domain within the same forest then you will have issues because you only have one Exchange org within a forest so all your testing will in fact be done on the live environment.

Thanks for you reply Mark.

This will be on a different forest, we only have a root domain (MBA.local) the test domain will is called test.local and has its own DC and Active Directory.
